Hey everyone. Im really sorry that I haven't updated in so long, but school has been really busy. I HATE HOMEWORK! I hope u like this story.
Chapter 4- Do we, or don't we?
The seconds ticked by while the group tried to comprehend the situation. Nobody knew what to say. When they were rescued, everything was so hectic and emotional that nobody even gave a second thought to Ethan. They did manage to track down the french woman, and bring her home safely, but nobody gave a second thought to Ethan.
Jack looked around the room. He could tell what everyone was thinking. How could they be so stupid? How could they forget to tell the rescue teams about the man who nearly killed Charlie, and had kidnapped Claire? Jack knew that he needed to be the one to tell Detective Harris. He was their leader on the island, and the survivors still depended on him.
"Detective Harris," Jack spoke up, awaking everyone from their thoughts. "There's something you should know."
"What do you mean?" the detective looked puzzled.
"There was someone else on the island. He was there before our crash. He tried to pose as one of our own, and unfortunately managed to kidnap Charlie and Claire. We did get them back, but he had tried to kill Charlie, and Claire doesn't even remember being with him. She just showed up at camp one night, with no memories of the crash."
Detective Harris looked puzzled. "Do you know anything about him? A name? How he got on the island?"
"He said that his name is Ethan Rom, but he could have been lying." Jack said.
"Well there's defiantly something odd about him. We're going to have to get right on this. If he's as harmful as you've let on, Dr. Shepard, we don't have any time to waste," Said Detective Harris.
"What exactly do you mean when you say "we" decretive?" Sawyer asked. "There's no freekin way that im going back to that hell hole island."
"Well, I thought that it would be safer, and quicker if my team and I had some of you come with us. You all must know the island fairly well after being there for almost 2 years. Are any of you willing to go?"
The room became silent again. Go back to the island? The place where they never wanted to see again. The place where some of them were almost killed. It seemed crazy to even think about it. But for some reason they wanted to.
That reason was they wanted revenge.
Jack looked down at Kate. They both knew that this was something that they had to do. Kate took his hand in hers, and nodded. He smiled.
"Are you sure you want to do this?" he asked her. She nodded again.
"Kate and I will go, Detective."
"Thank you Dr. Shepard. Anyone else?"
Charlie wanted to go so badly that it hurt. He hated Ethan for what he did to both Claire and himself. The only way he would be able to forget about Ethan, is if he were dead. But now he had responsibilities. He had Claire and James, and he couldn't leave them.
"Charlie and I will go too." Claire said, looking at Charlie. She knew he wanted to go, she could see it in his eyes.
"But Claire, what about James?" Charlie asked.
"He can stay with my mother Charlie. This is something we need to do." Charlie gave her a kiss on the cheek, and squeezed her hand, as a thank you.
"Alright then. That's four of you. Anyone else? It would be good to have at least five." Said the detective.
"Aw hell, I'll go." Sawyer yelled out. "Not like I've got anything around here worth staying for. Besides, I gotta keep an eye on Freckles."
Kate blushed. She wished that Sawyer would stop calling her that, she knew it made Jack jealous.
Everyone was surprised to see that Sawyer volunteered. They defiantly didn't see that one coming.
"Alright then, its settled. Dr. Shepard, Miss Ryan, Mr. Pace, Miss Littleton and Mr. Sawyer. Are you all sure that you want to do this?" Asked Detective Harris.
Everyone nodded. Somebody needed to stop Ethan. Even if it meant going back to the place where it all began.
Hope you all like it! Thanks for the reviews...and keep reviewing!
